M3GAN star Allison Williams discusses how she takes on such different characters in the horror genre, and dashes a popular Get Out fan theory.

M3GAN star Allison Williams unexpectedly shot down fan theories surrounding her character from Get Out.

During an interview with Dead Meat, Williams was asked about how she approaches each of the different roles she portrays. “It’s tricky,” she said. “Like with Rose, I’m sort of playing someone who is playing someone. So at her core she’s deeply evil, and so I didn’t respect her, but I had to, like, totally understand her and be able to just embody her.”

Jordan Peele’s 2017 directorial debut Get Out saw Williams portray Rose Armitage, the girlfriend of Daniel Kaluuya’s Chris Washington, and daughter of the film’s villainous duo played by Bradley Whitford and Catherine Keener. While Rose plays the pivotal role in leading Chris into the Armitage’s house of horrors, one popular fan theory posits that she, too, is a victim of her parents’ manipulations and was hypnotized as well. However, Williams’ acknowledgment of Rose’s inherent evil would indicate that it doesn’t hold up.

In M3GAN, Williams stars as Gemma, the creator of the titular murderous android. At the time of writing, M3GAN has a fresh score of 95% on Rotten Tomatoes, placing it just behind Get Out‘s 98%, making it Blumhouse’s second-best-reviewed film. M3GAN was also predicted to take second billing at the box office during its opening weekend, beaten out only by James Cameron’s Avatar: The Way of Water, which has so far grossed $457.4 million at the domestic box office.

Directed by Gerard Johnstone, M3GAN follows Gemma, a roboticist who builds a lifelike doll powered by artificial intelligence, designed to be the perfect companion for a child. However, things go awry when Gemma gifts her niece a M3GAN prototype. Speaking to CBR, Williams discussed the audience response to M3GAN, which was released in theaters on Jan 6.

“‘Fun’ is my favorite adjective to hear about it,” Williams said. “It’s because you’re not expecting it. You’re expecting that it is gonna be a serious kind of… It’s James Wan. It’s Blumhouse. I’m gonna be terrified. Then you come out of it, and you’re like, ‘I giggled more than I thought I was going to!” Williams also noted that the film’s genre-blending between horror and comedy has, “[Director Gerard Stone] written all over it.”

In regard to working within that particular space as an actor, Williams said, “That tonal shift, I think that life more closely mirrors that wild shift than one beat the whole time… Especially if we go from, like, we’re scrolling through our Twitter feed, we’re looking at stuff that’s funny and whimsical, and then we see something horrible in real life. We are just good at flying through those transitions now in a way that we didn’t use to be as much… We all need much more therapy than we’re getting.”

M3GAN is in theaters now.
